Ah yes. The artist statement version.
(Trinker used to be a jeweler, and hung around with a bunch of high-end craft and art jewelry folk. Statements like, "I dunno, I just thought it looked nice" don't garner as much critical (and fan/patron) attention as "X has always felt a deep affinity for the sea and mountains, and draws upon a lifetime of dream exploration to create unique artworks that speak to the refined viewer..." (Even worse is, "I make kitten designs because they sell well, and I like eating and staying dry.")
